That bug refers to an entry in /etc/apt/backup.  There is no such file
or directory on my system. 

The symptom, however, appears to be exactly what I'm experiencing, and
I have in fact run the apt-cdrom command, so it's likely that this is
exactly the problem I'm experiencing.  It's just, the workaround
documented isn't applicable here. 

Making the obvious guess, and commenting out the cdrom line in
/etc/apt/sources-list appears to have worked.  Thanks!

So now, how do I report the bug against the bug report?
